PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Items from the estate of the late Dale and Patty Vining – hundreds of exotic and unusual objects, antiques and collectibles, gathered over three decades while Dale served as an agricultural attaché at four overseas U.S. embassies – will be sold at auction on Feb. 27 by the Specialists of the South Inc.

The auction will be held in the firm’s gallery, at 544 E. Sixth St., beginning at 8 a.m. Central time. Nearly all of the 500 lots will come from the Vinings’ estate. Absentee and Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com.

The couple’s first big purchase was Danish teak mid-century modern furniture, including a large dining table by Skovmand & Andersen with six dining chairs by Randers Mobelfabrik (above).
